What You Need to Gain to Lose

Hello Rose.


Many people think about losing weight, but often fall short of an actual attempt to do it. Why so many people think about it so much is because deep down, they know that having that extra poundage is not good for them. The problem is just knowing that being overweight is bad is not enough to push many people to do something about it. Just knowing it is bad for you doesn’t induce people to make a change; however, if you were to find some really good reasons to lose weight, like you’d be able to walk more and enjoy more of your favorite activities, that might make you act and just do it.

The more good reasons you have to make a change, the more likely you are to act on it and make it happen. If you have something driving your motivation aside from just knowing it is bad for you, you are also more likely to maintain your weight loss goal once you reach it.

Losing weight means getting healthier. When you lose those extra pounds you greatly reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes and joint stress, all conditions associated with being overweight. When you reduce these risks, it means you can have a much better chance of being around to see your children grow up and to enjoy your grandchildren. 

Losing weight means feeling better. As you begin to lose some of those extra pounds, you will start to notice your energy levels increase. Extra body fat is nothing more than an extra burden to carry around with you every day; extra weight drains your energy. For this reason, overweight people tend to be less active which can lead to a continuing cycle of inactivity and obesity.

Losing weight means looking better: a nice side benefit! When you look better, it shows and people notice. You hear things like:
You look so good!


You’ve lost weight, haven’t you? 


Wow, what have you been doing, you are glowing?
When you have a few good valid reasons to want to lose weight, it will be a lot easier to motivate yourself to get started and stay with it.


YOUR health, well-being and self-esteem are very good reasons to get rid of those extra pounds and keep them off for good.

Sending You Tons of Love and Humongous Hugs,
